Brendan Dawes is a designer exploring the interaction of objects, people, technology and art using form and code with an eclectic mix of digital and analog materials.
Ever since his first experiences with the humble ZX81 back in the early eighties, Brendan has continued to explore the interplay of people, code, design and art through his work on brendandawes.com where he publishes ideas, toys and projects created from an eclectic mix of digital and analog objects.
His work is featured in the permanent collection of The Museum of Modern Art in New York and is a Visiting Teaching Fellow at the Manchester School of Art.
Brendan likes to cut things up then splice them together in different ways to make new things. In this talk, he takes you through some of his work and the thought processes behind that work. From generative installations to 3D printed data to the Internet of Things, Brendan shows the fun, eclectic nature of being a designer in the 21st Century and how we’re only just getting started!
